I am beginning to think that wrap skirts are going to be for the Summer of 2011 what elastic-waist skirts were for the Summer of 2007. Time will tell, but I’m already off to a pretty good start.
Here is the latest, made a few weeks ago to wear to Eamonn’s First Communion.
Pattern: Spring Wrap Skirt by me
Fabric: Bliss Bouquet in Teal from Amy Butler’s Love collection
Ok, so here’s a question for you: I usually wear close-fitting t-shirts or tanks with my skirts, but I never know what to do when the situation calls for something dressier. Lately, I’ve just been adding a sweater to the outfit, and that works nicely. Until I get warm. I have the hardest time, because I’m heavier than I want to be, and I don’t particularly like the way certain styles look on me at all, let alone with a skirt. The ideal shirt would define my waist more, and my chest less.
Maybe I’ve answered my own question there – a knit faux wrap shirt could work – something like this one? Still kind of busty, though. Argh. I don’t know.
What kind of shirt would you wear with a fitted wrap skirt like this?
